Great experience and very organised. if there is an improvement that needs to be made will be the food, im not vegetarian so im ok but i can see that some of the vegetarian or vegan on the boat struggled with the food coz theres not much option. other than that it is perfect experience for me and my husband..
Definitely worth it! We stayed at Port Douglas and the the tour operator picked us up around 8.30am. Our tour guide Daniel was super-entertaining and kept the group engaged. He is very knowledgable and knows flora and fauna of the region quite well.
The tour packs a lot in one day but there isn't a single moment of dullness! We went through Daintree rainforest; crossed Daintree river; and then drove all the way up to Cape Tribulation. The tour includes lunch. We had lunch in the middle of the rainforest next to a river. It was beautiful and the lunch serving comprising of steak; sausages; fish; rice and salad was quite generous. Along the way, we also managed to squeeze in a quick stop at Daintree Ice Cream Co. in the middle of the forest! We wrapped-up the tour by doing a short 45 min river cruise on river Daintree and were dropped-off back in Port Douglas by 4:30pm.
Definitely recommend this trip. It's good value for money.
Was sceptical before about it being a tourist trap once we arrived on the island but couldn’t have been further from the truth. Apart from the pre arranged semi sub and glass bottom boat activities, so plenty of time to relax on the white sandy beaches and crystal clear sea. Managed to see reef sharks and numerous turtles which enhanced our visit.
Had a great family experience getting up and close with a lot of the animals, especially the koalas. We have been to many wildlife habitats and found this to be one of the best if you are after a personal experience and being able to get so close to them. We didn’t get to view all the enclosures or shows as the kids were getting too hot and wanted to head back for a swim at our resort. However the ability to return for a complementary visit meant you weren’t pressed to try and complete everything in your first visit. Staff were all very friendly and pleasant and we had no issues when using our voucher. We also paid $15 for a croc feeding experience (Fresh water croc) which the kids enjoyed as well.
What a fascinating place to learn about farming of crocodiles but also see them floating around on the lake and jumping for food is amazing. Great place to see other animals as well like the cassowary and koalas s. My kids loved it and I’d highly recommend as a good day out. Buying with klook is a great deal!
This was a very unique experience where you got to see the crocs up close and personal. Aside from seeing crocs, you could also see tons of other animals ranging from Komodo dragons, snakes, cassowaries to birds of prey and koalas. I really felt like this was a great deal and super easy to redeem since all I had to do was go to the counter and let them know I had bought my ticket online.
